Rob Buckley, who runs the British blog "The Medium Is Not Enough" posted this video today, from 1976:
I asked him if it was possible that somebody might have spoofed this show for pornographic purposes. I mean, look at those spiders Itsy and Bitsy! They're basically disguised hands! This is the perfect puppet show for onanists!
Rob's response? "Rule 34".
I never heard that phrase before, and a quick Google search brought me these splainins from the "Urban Dictionary":
Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions.
Generally accepted internet rule that states that pornography or sexually related material exists for any conceivable subject.
If not, then porn will be made of it as soon as someone hears what you are looking for.
True for any movie, game, character, etc. that you can think of, and some you can't.
As I wrote on my Facebook page right after, "For one who delights in all manifestations of "going there", only just this minute have I learned about Rule 34! My guiding principle in Life and I didn't even know it had a name!!!"
